Mourinho hails 'fantastic' Manchester United win over Juventus

"I was very pleased to score my first Champions League goal for Juventus, but we're in good shape".

Ronaldo's comments, coupled with his goal celebration, has been strongly criticized by a section of United fans on social media.

Jose Mourinho's side had looked utterly toothless in attack but after the Portuguese threw on Mata, Marouane Fellaini and Marcus Rashford late in the game they staged the most unlikely of comebacks, recalling their epic 3-2 win from two goals down in Turin in the 1999 semi-finals. After United's 1-0 loss to Juventus at home two weeks ago, he responded to the goading of the Italian fans by holding up three fingers toward them, denoting the treble of titles - Champions League, Serie A and Italian Cup - he won with Inter in the 2009-10 season.

"For me, there is no bigger inspiration in football".

Paul Pogba's return did not quite go so well against his former club and he again struggled to show his best form. I think they are a better side than Juve, which is a big statement, but based on current form, I have no doubts. With Lukaku they are more inclined to play direct, whereas Sánchez is really good at dropping deeper and linking up with the midfield and wingers.

Iran vows to 'proudly bypass' USA sanctions
However, one must keep in mind that the Iranian government has stated that it will continue to sell oil in different ways. Some 52 Americans were held hostage in the embassy for 444 days and the two countries have been enemies ever since.

The trip to the Etihad offers United the chance to secure another statement win and silence critics that had grown during a poor start to the season.

The defeat was Juve's first in 15 games in all competitions since Ronaldo signed from Spanish giants Real Madrid in July. His delivery from set pieces is one of the reasons why he is keeping Antonio Valencia out of the team. "We played with that spirit and we scored two goals like this".

He's an artist who plays the game with so much class but he also has that cutting edge, as well as unbelievable feet and balance.

I am a student of the game. "What he proved in Turin was that he can still give his team the tactics to make them competitive against superior opponents", he told the Daily Mail. "And especially there is always a lot of negative comments about us but hopefully they might say something positive for once, because I think we deserve it, the team deserve it, the manager deserves it for getting this incredible result". We are not putting in consistent performances at the moment but there's still a long way to go and we still have a chance of pulling it back. Juventus were doubly stunned when United scored again three minutes later. Lots of work to do - it is a marathon not a sprint.
